    Sim Racing Series drama at Catalunya!

    Watch the entire stream from Catalunya - including practice, qualifying and race sessions - in the YouTube video above.

    You can watch the Catalunya track guide with race host Morad here:

    In the RSR GTE category, a MASSIVE first-lap incident could shape the championship standings going into next week's final round.

    Would Alex Simonic increase his lead at the top? Could Kaden Bihn close the gap? Would Daniel Morad score his first Racing Edge SimRacing victory of the season? Or would Phil Denes thwart the race host?

    And how did GT4 championship leader Andrew Waring fare on his RSR GTE debut? You'll have to watch the video to find out!

    In the GT4 category, with Waring stepping up in class, the field was wide open for his challengers.

    Michael Moorley and Sam Fellows were both looking to close the points gap, as was Michael Broomhead. But Thomas Cope, Colin McKevitt and Stephen Sherriff had other ideas, until a shocking final lap!
